An amazing short by an "orchestra" of vibraphone players. Some viewers have noted that this film seems to be a mirror image of how things are supposed to be. This is because original Soundie films were printed backwards so that they could appear correct when played in the Panoram machine (an early film jukebox).

A collection of pleasantly disturbing short clips, taken exclusively from the freely downloadable movies at www.archive.org, set to a nerve-wracking original score. Carefully chosen, these clips convey, through conceptual progression, a whimsical, filthy dread. An inspiring trip through the flaky detritus hob-knobbing with the dust mites in the Prelinger Archives. This movie is available as a DVD-compliant MPEG2, a VCD-compliant MPEG1, and whatever other formats you see listed to your left.

A bizarre flick from Mexico translated by K. Gordon Murray for children's matinees, in which Santa Claus is the envy of the CIA and avoids child labor laws by keeping his slaves in an orbital castle over the North Pole. Currently #44 on IMDB's Bottom 100 of worst films, beating out "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" by a wide margin. From everything I've heard, it's PD in Mexico, too, so the GATT monster didn't get this one!
